TLF Version 1.002 Released (Tech Acquisitions And Planetary Attacks)

Version 1.002 is now out, and includes lots of goodies.  One of the top-requested features was a way to get techs from races that already have them, and so that's today's "feature of the day."

Beyond that, there are a ton of fixes and improvements all over the place:

* A few GUIs are now quicker to navigate through (those small-action "after action report" popups, primarily).

* A lot of racial attitudes now shift in reaction to bad things that you do to other races.

* Fixed three exploits that clever players found.  It's always fun to see what an increasingly-larger audience thinks of that a smaller one did not.  And then of course do something about it. :)

* We also fixed some really unfortunate errors in the planetary ground and bombing attacks that were making those basically... well, borked.  Incredibly sorry about that.  It was a small change that we had made right prior to the weekend that caused it, and the fact that it was happening was not immediately obvious.

* And then some other, smaller bugfixes as well.

Today is the first day of us releasing at least one new free feature every DAY at this point, thanks to the overwhelming support this game has had.  Seriously, this is now our best launch ever, and we're extremely grateful to our ever-growing community for their support, as well as to the press for taking the time out to look at our stuff.

After this week, we'll continue putting out at least one new free feature every week for at least a few months, if not longer.  A quest, a new weapon or ability, a new ship, a new action... something.  We'll vary it up, and make it fun.  I'm really excited about expanding the game even further, as large as it already is.  Right now we're doing that very fast in response to all the huge numbers of new players and all the things that a larger audience is bound to dig up in a game of this scope and complexity; once that settles down, we'll make it less intensive but still ongoing.

More to come tomorrow.  Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the in-game updater, or if you have Steam it will automatically update it for you.  To force Steam to download it faster, just restart Steam and it will do so.
